Colin Cowherd: “Anthony Davis is the best player in American sports that you haven’t seen and that nobody really knows. Ninety-five percent of fans have never seen him play. He’s 26-years-old and the scouts I talk to think he’s just now going into his PRIME. This kid is going to be a 27 points per game player, top 3 in blocks, top 3 in rebounds, best free throw shooting big in the game, never have to take him out, maybe the best defensive player in the NBA, and most of you have never watched him play outside YouTube highlights.”
Listen to Colin Cowherd explain why he thinks Lakers superstar forward Anthony Davis is one of the most unheralded superstars in sports considering the 25-year-old has quietly flown under the radar in New Orleans as arguably the game’s best player.
The six-time All-Star has averaged 23.7 points and 10.5 rebounds during his career and has already led the league in blocks three times during his seven seasons.
Colin says the average NBA fan has never seen Davis play aside from a rare YouTube video or sports highlight showing a monster dunk or emphatic block.
With Davis now taking his talents to the nation’s second largest media market in Los Angeles on the league’s most glamorous team, the Lakers, Colin says Davis’ career is going to significantly blast off with the entire country about to witness how dominant Davis really is with the spotlight of LeBron James ready to share its radiance with AD.
